Infrastructure development in the State, of late, has been receiving the much needed thrust. Several major projects will become operational in the coming years. Through Kerala Infrastructure Investment Fund Board, the State is aiming to address the constraints of resource availability in financing infrastructure projects. This has been one of innovative and decisive steps taken by the State. Similarly, the State is creating a niche in the field of startups and has taken several encouraging measures in this regard. Much, however, still needs to be done in the field of energy as the State relies heavily on hydro sources of power for generation of electricity. The deficient rainfall this season has worsened the situation on this front. Availability of a sound infrastructure, including power supply is required to support the other sectors of the economy. The renewed thrust and focus on infrastructure needs to be continued with vigour for propelling the State's economic growth as well as social prosperity.
